It was the elderly lady who said that there were some leftover handmade noodles, and she also decided to cook spicy pickled fish noodles. Also, she had added that if he was really hungry, he should just put up with it this time.
So how did he ended up accommodating Wen Xuxu?
He ignored them and ate his noodles in low-spirits.
Xuxu, on the other hand, finished her bowl in no time.
She pulled some tissue and dabbed her mouth. She then said to Aunt Zhang, “Aunt Zhang, you should rest. It’s getting late and you should take care of your health.”
Aunt Zhang answered from the kitchen. “Okay, I will. I will rest in a bit.”
“I’m going back to my room first, rest early.”
Xuxu informed her and turned around to leave. After taking a few steps, she stopped abruptly.
She stood there stiffly as a thought came up to her mind. When she turned around, she saw Yan Rusheng who had just finished eating. She gave a faint smile and said, “Thank you for tonight.”
She was grateful to him for bailing her out from the police station.
And even more thankful that he didn’t tell Aunt Mu Li what had happened.
She said her piece and was about to continue walking forward when Yan Rusheng spoke. “If the police station didn’t call to inform me, you would you have still contacted me?”
Or would she choose to remain detained than to seek help from him?
Or perhaps if the police haven’t informed him, then would she have called for Jiang Zhouheng?
Regarding her minor accident this morning, didn’t she remain silent throughout their journey?
Xuxu lowered her head and fell silent. Her silence answered his question.
Yes, if the police haven’t informed him, she wouldn’t have called him.
If only the dynamics of their relationship hadn’t changed. If only he had never given her warmth. If only Fang Jiayin didn’t reappear.
But alas, there wasn’t anyifs.
She had gone back to the initial phase of their marriage by pretending to be his wife-in-name, with no feelings involved.
She would try to be independent. But if she can’t, she told herself that, as long as she tried her best, she would be able to.
In this case, she wouldn’t have to depend on him. And in the next time she was in trouble, she wouldn’t feel helpless or disappointed when he wasn’t around to hold her.
And she wouldn’t mind the fact that he used his power and influence to protect and shelter her, he had already done the same thing for another woman anyway.
Finally, she realized how greedy she was. She couldn’t stand the thought of a different woman occupying even a tiny spot in Yan Rusheng’s heart.
Yan Rusheng, on the other hand, clenched his fists as he tried his best to suppress the raging and violent beast inside of him.
He knew he would be appeased if she just softened the look in her eyes, but no, even until now, she simply refused to yield to him.
Xuxu didn’t halt as she turned around to stride out of the dining room.
After she left, Aunt Zhang came out of the kitchen. Yan Rusheng’s back was facing her so she didn’t see the terrible and furious expression he had on his face.
She walked towards him and said earnestly, “Third Young Master, Madam said that a man should give and take. A man should give in to a woman and furthermore, she is your wife. There’s nothing to be ashamed of.”
She stood beside him and when she glanced at his face, the old lady was alarmed and terrified by his expression.
She clammed up and proceeded to promptly removed her apron as she left the dining room. Yan Rusheng was left alone.
He took out his cigarette case and began smoking. Aunt Zhang words echoed once more in the empty room.
Wasn’t he accommodating enough? To his own wife?
